iCloud tip: Hide unwanted apps from your list of Purchased apps

Hi George! While you can’t actually delete unwanted apps from iCloud, you can hide them from your list of purchased items.

(And in case you’re wondering, no—purchased apps don’t count against your allotment of iCloud storage.)

Now, you used to be able to hide purchased apps directly from your iPhone/iPad, but that feature seems to have been disabled sometime after last fall’s big iOS 6 update.

That said, you can still hide apps—or purchased music, videos, or books for that matter—with a little help from iTunes on your Mac or PC.

Here’s how…
